Production of high value-added minerals: grain design

Particle design is an emerging scientific field that explores the controllability of physical, physicochemical, and chemical properties of particulate matter. This includes aspects such as shape, surface roughness, size distribution, composition, and surface characteristics. Technologies used for particle design aim to enhance material performance and properties through mechanical process operations.
